[ntp:questions] Motorola Oncore UT+ problems

Hi guys!

Here's the problem: I have one particular Oncore UT+ receiver (2.2 firmware
revision) that only works in mode 3, i.e., I need to reset it (losing the
almanac) everytime I restart the NTP daemon. As you might imagine this is a
major problem.

If I don't use mode 3 it just hangs at

55881 34932.888 127.127.30.0 ONCORE[0]: Have now loaded an ALMANAC
55881 34932.888 127.127.30.0 ONCORE[0]: state = ONCORE_RUN
55881 34932.888 127.127.30.0 ONCORE[0]: SSstate = ONCORE_SS_DONE
55881 34932.958 127.127.30.0 ONCORE[0]: ONCORE: Detected TRAIM, TRAIM = ON
55881 34932.958 127.127.30.0 ONCORE[0]: Input   says TRAIM = 1
55881 34932.958 127.127.30.0 ONCORE[0]: Model # says TRAIM = 1
55881 34932.958 127.127.30.0 ONCORE[0]: Testing says TRAIM = 1
55881 34932.958 127.127.30.0 ONCORE[0]: Using        TRAIM = 1
55881 34933.987 127.127.30.0 ONCORE[0]: PPS Offset is set to 0 ns
55881 34934.004 127.127.30.0 ONCORE[0]: Satellite mask angle is 0 degrees

and stays here forever.

I searched the archives and could not find a similiar problem.

My ntp.oncore.0 file is this

MODE 1
#
#The following coordinates were surveyed using SynTac over a day
#
LAT 41 10 28.3055
LONG -8 39 21.9320
HT 131.84 M
TRAIM YES
DELAY 25 NS
CLEAR
MASK 0
HARDPPS

And my ntp.conf file is

server 127.127.30.0 prefer

I am running 4.2.6p3 and I have all the required links in /dev.

Has anyone ever had a similar problem?

Cheers,
Miguel
